Entries in core (1)
I was introduced to the Insanity DVD collection by one of my fabulous fitness friends. And let me tell you…the Insanity workouts are exactly that – INSANE! I originally bought these bad boys for my husband as a holiday gift, but secretly knew that it was also a gift for myself.
The extreme workouts are led by Shaun T, who is also a native of New Jersey like myself. He is most known for his choreography on television as well as theater. Hehas worked with many companies and artists including Mariah Carey, Aaron and Nick Carter, Nike, the Los Angeles Lakers and Marc Jacobs.
The workout DVD series comes with 10 discs that incorporate 30 to 60 minutes of plyometric drills at maximum-intensity intervals of strength, power, resistance and core training moves. The best part about this hardcore workout is that I don’t need any equipment! I only need a large bottle of water and a small area in front of the TV. I also love that Shaun alternates the heart-pumping bursts with yoga-influenced stretches as active recovery, which also increases your range of motion and flexibility.
Entire set is available for purchase at Beachbody® for $119.85.
Pros: challenging, cardio/flexibility/resistance training all in one, dynamic moves, convenient
Cons: background music, not good for beginners
